Guilford College is the perfect example of a home away from home. I'm from Virginia, so the thought moving to a different state and going hours away from my family did scare me. However, after going on my first visit there I fell in love with the people there and the campus. The campus is the perfect environment where you can enjoy continuing your education while appreciating beautiful scenery around you. Even the people there were so welcoming and kind, without even knowing me the girls soccer team there welcomed me with open arms like I was one of their own. I've never felt closer to a group of girls that fast, it was relieving to know that leaving my first visit at Guilford I already had friends to remind me of how great the college is. Guilford is truly a place where your education is valued and one where you are appreciated, there's no other college I'd see myself attending because it wouldn't offer the kind of welcoming, family feeling that Guilford does!

I love the opportunities Guilford College offers for students to get hands on experience in their field. The opportunity to receive scholarships while participating in community based work is especially valuable. I also love the professors and their eagerness to help you be successful as a students. They truly invest in their students and care about the process just as much as the outcomes and that really shows throughout every minute of experience with them. The quality of the student experience is held as an important aspect of Guilford and you can see that value in every event and every meal. They offer great choices for all kinds of diet restrictions and preferences. They also offer a variety of celebrations and student events on campus, putting an emphasis on the beauty of diversity.
Hello, my name is Candice Burch and I will be a 4th year student at Guilford College in the Fall of 2019. I am a Public Health major and a Philosophy minor. My experience at Guilford College has been amazing. I have not only learned about the real world, but about myself and what I want to do in life. Guilford taught me patience, time management and self care which then lead me to change my major from Health Science to Public Health. Being able to help others not only maintain their physical health, but holistic health. If it wasn’t for Guilford College I would have never discovered who I truly am and what I love to do.
